AP/Yahoo: Initial jobless claims increase unexpectedly

Unexpectedly??? Were the stats corrected for the unrelenting Spring storms, local and regional transitions and layoffs, or the plain fact that macro numbers are a functionally useless measure of the American economy? No.

Just another bunch of functionaries sitting in sunless rooms pushing statistics from one side of a desk to another. And the sick thing is they get paid to be wrong. Fuck it. Better you should believe in the Green Gorilla.

Who has "...the stupid...it hurts..." Good place to insert it. (now now, be polite - I didn't say 'stick it')

Anyone know what unemployment really is? The statistics just seem way out of whack with the reality around me.
